Utah is home to 41 Title IV colleges. Just a few of the state’s top-tier Title IVs include Brigham Young, University of Utah, Weber State University, and Utah State University. Many of these top schools offer excellent programs for artists and designers. Fortunately, all Title Iv schools are eligible for federal financial aid programs, making them more accessible to students with financial need.
To claim Title IV status, each school has met five strict requirements established by the U.S. Department of Education. Title IV schools must (1) grant an associate's degree or higher (2) be in business for at least 2 years, (3) sign a participation agreement with the Department, (4) have accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education,and (5) offer a program of at least 300 clock hours in length.
In addition to Title IV status, Utah’s top-tier schools have excellent job placement services, a wide variety of programs, clubs and organizations, and comfortable class sizes. Some are considered affordable and most are conveniently located, with easy access to Salt Lake City—the state’s largest city, West Valley City, Provo, West Jordan, and Orem.
